Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them. You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed, so mere people can no longer terrify them. – Psalm 10:17-18 (NLT)
In each community where we work, Hands at Work dreams of providing safe places where children and caregivers come together daily with Care Workers. Pray these places will be centres of life where joy is experienced and restoration takes place. Many of our Care Workers and caregivers are wounded themselves. Pray for God’s transformational mercy and love to heal their inner wounds through spending more time together and sharing their challenges. Pray they will in turn pour out mercy and love to the children they care for, and in doing so bring transformation and healing of the children’s own wounds.
